The couple believe she could be one of, if not the smallest dogs in the region.

Ron, 67, of St Chad’s Road, South Shore, Blackpool said: “She only weighs just under two pounds.

“She is just tiny. She must be one of the smallest dogs in Britain. I do not think she will grow any more.”

Boo, who measures eight inches in length, was bought by the couple earlier this year.

The smallest dog living, in terms of height, is a female Chihuahua called Milly from Puerto Rico, who measured 9.65cm (3.8 in) tall on February 2013.

Ron said he was very protective of his cute pooch – admitting he treats her like a child.

Ron added: “We are not looking for over publicity, but just thought it would make a nice story. At the moment we have kept her under wraps so to speak. She is like family to us, like a child.”
